Bio: “Growing up I was always trying to find my niche. I tried all sports from soccer to football and bmx to snowboarding, but nothing felt “right”. These sports were all organized in a way that limited creativity and lacked freedom. On top of that, most of these sports required you to stay on the ground and since I was young I loved being upside down and up in the air. As a kid I spent a lot of my time on the trampoline and then eventually started doing flips and tricks on the grass. My first year of college I found out about parkour and what it was really about. I couldn’t believe that it took me so long to find out about something that I was meant to do. I have been training since late 2009 and now it’s all I ever want to do. I am currently a junior in college, studying to get my degree in Mechanincal Engineering. With this degree I plan to do something that I will enjoy and that will make a difference. I work at the John McConnell Math and Science Center, teaching kids math, science and engineering in an exciting and hands on way. I also work at a local gymnastics gym teaching parkour. Move to Inspire is going to be an outlet for a lot of tracuers and I am very blessed to be part of this community driven group.”
